Posted in: Billionaire Maezawa says his space trip 'amazing' See in context

I suggest to move this article from ‘National’ category to ‘Entertainment’.

Posted in: China marks 84th anniversary of Nanking Massacre See in context

Let’s remember these stories and try our best to avoid it now and in the future. One important lesson from WW2 is that we need to restrain any country with imperialistic/dictatorship agenda as early as possible before its too late. It may cost money now, but if not act, it will cost money and lives later.

Posted in: G7 warns Russia of massive consequences if Ukraine invaded See in context

What Russian “leaders” care less about is Russia itself. The best action against Russian hostility will be to block all the foreign assets of Russian “elite” and their families.

Posted in: In the fight against climate change, China is doing more than you think See in context

I think it is very naive to do analysis based solely on numbers and statements provided by Chinese government.

Posted in: China warns Olympics diplomatic boycott nations will 'pay a price' See in context

After these threats it will be wise to withdraw athletes too. It seems dangerous to go to China if they demonstrate hostility to your country. Not very aligned with the official values of Olympic movement either.

Posted in: 33% of major firms listed in Japan have no female executives See in context

Again just partial data. How can we know how many companies don’t have male executives? Maybe its 67%? :) I am just kidding.

Ha-ha, you can clearly see that oil prices were too high for too long :)

Posted in: One in three Australian parliament staff sexually harassed: report See in context

I am not sure why some of the commenters immediately started to blame men, but the article gives zero information about the distribution of gender of harassers and especially their quantity. Currently, Australian parliament has about 38% of women. If we roughly assume that harassment event usually includes participants from the opposite genders, then each man harassed on average about 0.39 women and each woman harassed approximately 0.24 men. However, realistically, it can be just one or two men and women who are doing all the harassment for the entire parliament.

Posted in: Japan apology needed to solve wartime labor issue: S Korean presidential candidate See in context

South Koreans might be just pretending that they hate Japan in hope that propaganda and nukes of North Korea will be targeting Japan as the main enemy. Otherwise I am out of rational explanations to what is happening.

Posted in: German scholar urges Kishida to carefully handle defense issues See in context

Whether any military show of force by Japan, or any country, will contribute to the solution of conflicts in the long term is, in my opinion, very doubtful.

We didn’t have major wars since 1945 only because some countries demonstrated such a military force which makes any large scale war meaningless for anyone.

Posted in: German scholar urges Kishida to carefully handle defense issues See in context

It’s all waste of money unless they are put into nuclear weapons. Everything else is just some kids toys. The best is to stop paying to USA and use saved money to develop own nuclear capability.

I think it will be only article I will roughly remember from the whole japantoday series.

I don’t understand half of the words in this article :) but beautiful illumination is always welcomed.

Posted in: Shinkansen conductor caught playing GPS smartphone game on train…for 10 years See in context

I could understand the issue if the complaint was about his performance as a conductor. Otherwise it is questionable what is better: sleepy zombie-like passengers-hating conductor or a motivated conductor doing his job extra well to have a spare minute to progress in his game.

Posted in: Japan's car exports keep plunging due to supply issues See in context


If car sales were to keep shrinking, it would cause short term pain, but would be great for the environment. 

I am not so sure about that. Shrinking sales doesn’t mean less cars on the streets, but rather higher percentage of old inefficient cars.

Cool, but what exactly here is the world’s first?

Posted in: Plenty of pitfalls await Zuckerberg's 'metaverse' plan See in context

It feels more like a desperate move to jump ahead of a time and get back into the stream. Facebook lost it to TikTok and they know it.

Posted in: Dalai Lama says China's leaders 'don't understand' diversity See in context

Do your homework, sport. Life under the theocrats in Tibet wasn’t free. It certainly wasn’t tolerant.

The problem with this logic is that it directly compares countries with 70 years time difference (Tibet in 1950s before it completely lost independence and China in 2020s).

Posted in: Climate talks struggle with gap between rich, poor nations See in context

The problem with poor countries is that the majority of them are poor because of corruption and inadequate governments. Giving them money is just a waste and will have mostly negative impact.

Larr Flint,

…they collect too much personal information.

I will be switching to some other brand I suppose.

Please let me know if you were able to find such brand.

Posted in: In the past, the focus of clothing for female athletes may have been appearance rather than function. The decision should be made according to the wishes of the athletes, with emphasis on function. See in context

This professor is not connected to reality. The main role of sports competitions is entertaining people, not results and scores. If you dress sportsmen in functional plastic bags I am not going to buy tickets to see them.

Posted in: 'Rust' shooting may have been sabotage, say armorer's lawyers See in context

Ideally, if you in charge of guns, you have to make sure that your guns are safe every time, and to make sure that nobody can touch them without your supervision. If it is organized differently, then such accidents are inevitable.

Two kids… Or perhaps it is some kind of game before elections in 2022 (for both of them).

Posted in: China-Russia flotilla displays show of force, says Japan defense chief See in context

I don’t see another explanation to that other than China and Russia are LDP’s puppets making a show to help them to win elections and raise the military budget at the same time. :)

Posted in: Bobsleigh test event See in context

Bobsleigh is an example how fun simple activity for everyone can be converted into something boring, ridiculously expensive and not accessible at the same time.

Posted in: Let computers do it: Film set tragedy spurs call to ban guns See in context

Yes! Let’s ban any activity and substitute it with CGI. Even walking can be deadly, so let’s stay safe on our sofas and watch how virtual characters perform physical activities.

Posted in: Japanese celebrities urge young people to vote in general election See in context

I feel jealous. In my home country the votes counting is rigged for more than 25 years, so I never voted in my entire life.

Posted in: Do you believe China will try to retake Taiwan by force one day? See in context

As long as Taiwanese people determined to defend themselves, China will never attack.

Posted in: 2,500 cases reported of sexually exploitative photos of athletes See in context

Also it is a waste of time and money, but some dudes have perfect jobs: checking arousing photos and videos in internet and report them to each other.

Posted in: Japanese billionaire Maezawa not afraid ahead of space trip See in context

I just had an idea how to get rid of these types of billionaires for good. We only need to suggest them that they can avoid taxes by permanently living in space.
